GOOD LIVING JANUARY 2018

Wel elc lccooom mee m

Happy New Year! I don’t know about you, but after all those weeks of festive indulgence, I can struggle to get back to normality. Sarah Thom While I’m not really a fan of the Asda Editor saying ‘new year, new you’, this month I will be making some small changes that will hopefully benefit my pocket as well as my waistline! To celebrate meat-free Mondays, we’ve rustled up some veggie dishes that are just as tasty as their meaty counterparts – our Butternut Squash Wellington is a must-try (p65) – while our midweek meals made with just five ingredients are quick, easy and start at just 52p per serving, so they’ll make your money go that bit further (p27). Coming from a Scottish family, I’m loving our Burns Night recipes (p53) and will be having a ‘wee dram’ on the 25th while tucking into our Irn-Bru Pulled Pork – cheers (or as we say in Scotland ‘slàinte’)! I’m so excited about the year ahead and I hope you are, too. Bring it on, 2018!

Dairy is ideal for breakfast, lunch or dinner – and it’s also great for healthier family snacking. Try these if you’re hungry… ● Tangy and creamy, Arla Quark is virtually fat free – use it instead of mayo in your favourite baked potato topping. ● Try Arla B.O.B Skimmed** Milk – it tastes like semi-skimmed. ● Spread reduced-fat soft cheese on wholemeal toast instead of jam ● A pot of fromage frais or yogurt is a convenient and easy option, and a good choice for a quick snack. Add fresh fruit to count towards your 5-a-day or sprinkle with granola for a tasty crunch.

Watch your waste

I’m a real fan of the “compost cuisine” trend – using parts of fruit or veg that usually end up in the bin. Try adding chopped cauliflower leaves and broccoli stems to a stir-fry or using overripe fruit to make a stewed compote, crumble or smoothie. hatewaste.com m For more ideas, visit lovefoodh 10 | ASDA.COM

Why not try our delicious Pasta with Beetroot & Greek Salad Cheese? Visit ASDA.GL/beetroot for the recipe

I love using winter root veg g in soups, stews and d mash, but there’s so o much more you can do with it. I enjo oy juiced raw beetroot and I also roast it to use in a frittata with mackerel. But what I love the most is when fresh beetro oot is hidden in cakes and bakes where it is combined with choccolate – an unlikely pairing but one thatt workks reallly welll. Unllike jarred d beetroot, which is soaked in vinegar, fresh beetroot has a delightful, sligh htly earthy flavour, which not only makes a refreshing change bu ut also gives an adde ed veg content to o your baking. Ready y-cooked fresh beetroot is a great standby ass it comes vacuum-p packed and has a relatively long shelf-life, plus it cuts down on n prep. Look on ASDAgoodliving.co.uk for beettroot brownie and cake recipes along with otther great cre eations such as burgers and d falafel. Get bacck to you ur roots…

If you don’t do Dry January but want to watch the calories when you raise a glass, this hoppy lager is just 89 calories per bottle. Cheers! Skinny Brands Lager*, £4.50 (4 x 330ml; £3.41/L)

‘Flavouring food needn’t involve sprinkling on salt. Grinding on pepper is a good quick fix, but using herbs is an effective and exciting way to add taste. If you’re making soups, salads and sandwiches, basil will add a lovely fresh flavour, rosemary and thyme work with dishes that have a strong umami (or savoury) taste and mint is great with pasta dishes. Spices can also act as a great salt swap. TIP Paprika goes Foods that well with meat contain salt are great dishes, or why for seasoning dishes not try a little – add Parmesan or turmeric in your anchovies to recipes veg dishes?’ so you don’t need

Thai salmon coconut curry

Rich, succulent salmon in a creamy sauce with a kick of mild spice SERVES 4 READY IN 30 MINS PRICE PER SERVING £1.66

Chunky fish is best when you’re making a fish curry – why not try haddock, pollock, cod or basa in place of the salmon?

● 1tsp rapeseed oil ● 1 onion, sliced ● 2tbsp Thai red curry paste ● 1 aubergine, chopped ● 1 courgette, chopped ● 80g mangetout ● 4 Asda Cook from

1 reduced-salt veg cube

● 250g Asda Easy Cook

Long Grain Brown Rice

● 200ml reduced-fat

coconut milk

● 15g fresh coriander ● 1-2 red chillies (optional)

WHY USE FROZEN? Our frozen fish and seafood is the same quality as our chilled range – and it’s frozen within hours of being harvested, for maximum freshness. Much of it can be cooked straight from frozen so you can whip up an impressive lunch or supper in minutes, or it can be thawed in the fridge and cooked like fresh fish. Simply pat dry with kitchen roll and take care not to overcook it.

1 Heat the oil on high in a wok or frying pan. Add the onion and curry paste and fry for 2 mins, stirring. Add the aubergine, courgette and mangetout. Cook for 2 mins. 2 Add the frozen salmon fillets, cover with the stock and simmer with the lid on for 20-25 mins or until the salmon is cooked through. 3 Meanwhile, cook the rice according to the instructions on the pack. Set aside. 4 Gently break the cooked salmon into chunks with a spoon. Add the coconut milk and heat through, stirring well – do not boil. 5 Divide the rice between 4 bowls. Top with the curry. Sprinkle with the coriander and chillies, if using. Energy

Cut or peel the skin from each segment then cut into small pieces. Put in a bowl and squeeze on any leftover juice from the skins. Repeat with the other citrus fruits. 2 Mix the coriander, spring onions, radish, chilli, garlic and 1tsp of the oil with the citrus pieces and set aside. 3 Heat the remaining oil in a large, nonstick frying pan over a high setting. Put the trout fillets in the pan, skinside down, and press down with a fish slice to crisp the skin. Cook for 2-3 mins on each side until the flesh is cooked through – take care not to overcook. 4 Serve the trout topped with the citrus salsa.

‘Exploring the Med has changed the way we cook’ The Hairy Bikers fill us in on their tour of the Mediterranean and serve up some of their favourite feel-good recipes

Interview: Harriette Casey. Photographs: Andrew Hayes-Watkins

The Hairy Bikers – aka Si King and Dave Myers – have just completed a food tour of Italy, France and Spain for their new cookbook and accompanying TV series The Hairy Bikers’ Mediterranean Adventure. We met up with the lovable duo to get the lowdown on what they love about Mediterranean cooking…

region, the food has been cooked the same way for many years and I think that’s part of the identity of the cuisine. We met a lady called Michaela who was 110 years old – she put her long and fruitful life down to eating homemade minestrone. Awesome!

Your previous food tours include the UK, America and Asia. What attracted you to the Med this time? DAVE We’d always thought the Med had some of the best food in the world, so this was a dream. We discovered some brilliant recipes, like tumbet, a veggie dish from Majorca. Cooking that recipe is like bringing the sunshine of the Mediterranean to your plate.

so enthusiastic and wanted to talk about their lifestyle and cuisine. The celebration of diversity is what always makes these trips so great.

How did this trip compare to your other adventures? DAVE We met so many wonderful chefs along the way and I learned so much about food. Applying the Med touch of using good oils and vinegars has changed the way I want to cook. SI The people we met were so lovely – the locals were

What do you love about the flavours of the Med? SI They’re so fresh and clean. DAVE I love the variety, too. You might not think of the food as spicy, but Italian ’nduja sausage with peperoncino chillies is so tasty. And Corsican meat dishes, cooked with olive oil and wine, are very mellow.

The Hairy pair – Si (left) and Dave

Did you taste any weird and wonderful new dishes? SI On Carloforte, an island off Sardinia, they call tuna ‘the pig of the sea’! It’s such a precious resource, they really embrace nose-to-tail eating. So we had tuna testicles with olive oil and lemon juice. It was surprisingly very lovely and the taste was quite mild! Has Mediterranean food changed over the years? SI I don’t think it really changes – from region to

What’s the secret to living a healthy Med lifestyle? DAVE It’s all about balance. Being from the north, I tend to live on pork products, like bacon and sausages. In contrast, Mediterranean food is so varied. SI In the Med, people still bring food they grow at home into a marketplace for others to buy. So you get amazing seasonal produce. There’s very little processed food – and that’s the secret, really. Do you have any top tips for losing weight and eating better this January? DAVE Get on the scales on 2 January and don’t delude yourself – we are both going to do it, too! Turn over for Si and Dave’s fave recipes from the Med

Step aside goth ice cream, galaxy cakes and the mirror glaze craze, here’s what the next 12 months are set to serve up

From Hawaiian sweets to floral flavours, 2018 is all about getting adventurous with food. We asked Asda Development Chef Mark Richmond d for his top predictions. ‘As exotic cuisin nes from around the globe become more accessible in the UK, there’s an amazing variiety of food to experiment with at home,’ he says. Read on for his round-up of the e best new tastes around...

KOREAN CUISINE

Sup upe per bow owl w

Korean food hass been on the rise for the past few years and, in 2018, it’s almost certain to take the spottlight. ‘Dishes like kimchi and galbi are now universally popular and chefs are using Korean fla avours in classic dishes like fried chicken and barrbecue burritos,’ says Mark. For a Korean-inspire ed lunch, why not try a bibimbap bowl? Pronouncced ‘bee-beem-bahp’, this vibrant dish is a colourful combo of steamed rice, shredded sautéed vegetables, marinated beef, gochujang g (a spicy red chilli paste) and soy sauce, often n crowned with a golden fried egg. Don’t fancy y beef? Simply swap this out for a salmon fille et or some Korean spiced tofu.

HAWAIIAN CUISINE

In 2017, Hawaiian poke took foodies by storm, but America’s 50th state isn’t just about sushi bowls and surfing. Traditional dishes like Kalua pork ramen and tropical fruit desserts are now popping up on menus worldwide. This Hawaiian Pineapple Pudding Cake is full of sweet, ripe flavours – serve with coconut or mango ice cream for a truly exotic touch.

Lay out on baking trays lined with baking paper. 4 Bake for 30 mins until the tops have dried. Flip and cook for 30 mins. Take out of oven, allow to cool for 10 mins. 5 Put the pineapple slices into a muffin tin to help curve the edges and allow to cool fully before using. 6 To make the cake, increase the oven temperature to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4. Grease and line a 20cm square tin with baking paper. 7 In a large bowl, beat together the butter, caster sugar, eggs and flour until pale, fluffy and well combined. 8 Drain the pineapple chunks, reserving the juice, and stir through the batter.

‘Classicc potato crisps are being ousted by tasty puffed-up nibbles made from other vegetables, grains and pulses,’ explains Mark. ‘Many are lower in sugar and fat, a source of protein and fibre, and air-popped or baked, so they’re often healthier than traditional fried snacks.’ We love Hippeas Sweet & Smokin’ Organic Chickpeas Puffs, £1.99* (78g; £2.55/100g) and Kettle Bites Sweet Chilli Lentil Curls, £1.89 (5 x 22g; £1.72/ 100g).

SERVES 16 READY IN 5 HRS PRICE PER SERVING 55p

1 Preheat the oven to 150C/130C Fan/Gas 2. 2 Mix the paprika, 1tsp mustard powder and half the oil and rub over the meat (not the rind). Put the joint in a roasting tin or casserole dish, skin-side up. 3 Pour half the Irn-Bru into the tin (not over the pork). Cover with a lid or foil, sealing it tightly over the edges, leaving enough room around the joint for the air to circulate. Roast for 3-4 hrs until tender. 4 Carefully remove the foil or lid. Turn the oven up to

220C/200C Fan/Gas 7 and return the pork to the oven, uncovered. Cook for 20-25 mins to crisp the rind. 5 While the pork cooks, heat the remaining oil in a pan, add the onion and fry for 5 mins until soft. Add the ketchup, 5tbsp of the vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, remaining Irn-Bru and mustard powder. Simmer, uncovered, for 30 mins, stirring often, until the BBQ sauce is glossy. 6 Shred the cabbage, onion, sweet potato and turnip in a food processor (or thinly slice the cabbage and onion, and coarsely grate the sweet potato and turnip). In a large bowl, whisk the remaining 2tbsp vinegar, whisky, if using, sugar and mustards. Add the shredded veg and parsley and mix to coat thoroughly. Set aside to marinate for 1 hr. 7 Remove the pork from the oven and put on a plate. Remove the crisp skin, chop into bite-sized chunks and set aside. 8 Allow the meat to cool for 10 mins then scrape off any excess fat. Use 2 forks to shred the pork. 9 Pour the cooking liquor into a pan and heat to reduce by half. Stir in the BBQ sauce and mix with the pork. Serve with the crackling and coleslaw.

Tablet frozen yogurt

This frozen treat is flavoured with buttery tablet – similar to fudge but with a crumbly texture SERVES 28 READY IN 30 MINS, PLUS COOLING AND FREEZING PRICE PER SERVING 15p

● 100g butter ● 1kg golden caster sugar ● 200ml full-fat whole milk ● 397g can condensed milk ● 800g Asda Low Fat Natural Yogurt

1 Grease a 20cm x 20cm shallow square tin. 2 Gently melt the butter in a large, heavy-based pan. Add the sugar and milk and simmer on low, stirring, until the sugar dissolves. Add the condensed milk, bring to a boil and simmer for 5-10 mins until thickened, stirring continuously. 3 Test the temperature of the mixture with a sugar thermometer. Once it reaches 115C, remove from the heat. Beat with an electric hand-whisk, on a slow speed, for 5 mins until thickened but still

liquid enough to pour. Transfer to the tin. After 15 mins, score the top to make it easier to break. Cool, then snap into pieces. 4 Blend the yogurt and ¼ of the tablet in a processor until smooth.

‘HOW DO I… GET WINE STAINS OUT OF A CUSHION?’ 1 Don’t sprinkle salt – this is a myth.

‘WE HAVE A NEW PUPPY; DO YOU HAVE ANY TIPS ON TRAINING?’

This month’s guest expert, make-up artist to the stars Karin Darnell, gives you pro tips on beauty and skincare

Toilet training This should begin as soon as you get your puppy home (at about eight weeks old). Take them outside after every meal and nap, or if they show signs of wanting to ‘go’, like sniffing, and place them on a scented puppy pad. If the pup has an accident indoors, don’t give them any attention while you clear it up. Sit and stay Work on training your pup little and often. Teaching them to sit, stay and come when you call or whistle will be invaluable when you’re out on walks. Use a treat for puppies – like Asda Hero Super Soft Bones, 80p (85g; 94p/100g) or Asda Hero 12 Succulent Sausages, 80p (30g; £2.67/100g) – to get their attention, then give your command, speaking in a clear voice. When they obey you, immediately reward them with the treat and plenty of praise.

MOISTURISERS FOR DRY SKIN

HAIR & BEAUTY ‘How do I contour like a professional?’

The key to a flawless result is blending the different shades, which is best done with a large brush… ● Dark shade to start Use your fingers to find the underside of your cheekbone, then load a large blusher brush with the dark shade from the George 4 Shade Contour Powder Palette, £6* – dab it on your hand first, to remove any excess. ● Sweep down Starting from your ear, take the powder towards the

centre of your cheek – using a big brush helps to make sure you don’t get a stripe effect. ● Apply the light shade Use a slightly smaller brush to add this to the top of your cheekbone, just above your contour. If it’s not well blended, gently buff over the top with a clean brush until it looks seamless.

Words: Gemma Calvert

You’re a style icon for so many women – have you always loved make-up? The first make-up I ever owned was an eyeshadow Mum got me for Christmas when I was 12. I felt so grown-up when I wore it, but Mum was strict – she never let me wear make-up to school, only for special occasions. And if I put too much on, she’d say so! Do you have any hang-ups about your appearance? I’m so self-critical, but I’m no different to most other women. Some days I don’t have great skin – I get outbreaks of spots and feel self-conscious because it’s hard to hide. I’ve recently started laser treatment to

get to the root of it and I always keep my skincare routine simple. I also use products with salicylic acid as I find that seems to help. You did Strictly Come Dancing in 2014. How did the show change your life? It was the first thing I’d done on my own in years. As a new mum – my first son turned one when I was on the show – Stricctly was also about red discovering myself. Rea alising I could still perfo orm and that I was still me gave me a big g confidence boost.

Can you share any insider tips from your shoots with make-up professionals? The make-up artist for The Saturdays always did our eyes first. It makes sense, really, because once you do your eyeshadow or even mascara, it can drop onto your cheeks. How long do you spend doing your make-up? If I’m getting ready to go out, I’ll give myself an hour. I don’t like rushiing – it’s fun to enjoy the processs. But on a normal day? Pro obably about five minutes!

Do you ever take a risk with showstopping make-up? I tend to take more risks with my hair, which is weird – make-up is temporary whereas altering your hair can be a big change. When I first had long extensions, it wasn’t right. I was pregnant and it probably wasn’t the best time to try something new. I think I was trying to claw back my youth before becoming a mum!

‘On a normal day I do my make-up in about five minutes!’ Do you have any tips for feeling more confident? Rememb ber that while some peoplle might seem confident, they’’re probably not. We’re all the same e. The best beauty advice you’ve ever been given? Always take your make-up off before bed. I do it, even if I’ve been out or at an event – it’s so important. And keep to a routine. I cleanse, exfoliate and moisturise, and I use SPF every day.

Athleisure is a major streetwear trend right now. The focus is on laid-back, sporty pieces that lend a casual feel to your off-duty wardrobe, whether you’re working out or chillaxing. Embrace the sports-luxe look by stepping out in leggings, hoodies and easy-to-wear sweatshirt dresses. Up-andcoming singer-songwriter Hari Priya loves – and lives – this understated trend, so we asked her to put her spin on it and model the latest George collection… GEORGE.COM | 79


WORK THAT LOOK. Nail sportswear chic with cool separates that work just as well in the gym as they do for a lunch date with friends. Combining comfort with style, leggings and hoodies are such an easy wear – just add pool sliders to soften the sporty feel. ‘I like to keep it casual whether I’m working or relaxing,’ says Hari. ‘This look is so on-trend. I love it.’ Hoodie, XS-XL, £12.50; leggings*, XS-XL, £12.50; sliders, 3-8, £6

CHANGE OF A DRESS

I love this combo of black wet-look leggings and lime green jumper. The wide neck is great for adding a fashion spin, like wearing it off the shoulder

The wear-with-anything jumper dress gets a sporty makeover in this season’s hottest shade – hot pink. Go super-casual and wear this hooded sweatshirt dress with box-fresh white trainers and ankle socks, or team it with over-the-knee boots for a dressier vibe. ‘My style is casual, sometimes tomboyish, but I can be girly, too,’ says Hari. ‘I love this dress because it can do both looks.’

THE Trainer Sarah Maxwell Want to get fit this new year but don’t want to hit the gym? As personal trainer to the stars Sarah Maxwell explains, exercising doesn’t have to be pricey. ‘I’m a working mum, so I know how hard it is to do it all,’ she says. Running is free and will get you fit in no time, but if you don’t fancy heading out, Sarah has chosen six simple moves you can do around the house. ‘They fit into your day and don’t require any expensive kit,’ she says.

muscles, tighten your glutes (bottom muscles) and keep them contracted. 4 Hold for a few seconds, then relax. (If this is hard, bend your legs and rest

your knees on the floor.) 5 Start with three planks, holding each for 20 seconds, with a 20-second rest in between. Build up to planks of one minute, if you can.

Do two sets of 16 on each side, twice a week to begin with, building up to five times 1 Lie on the floor on your side with your knees bent and your feet in line with your spine. 2 Keep your feet together and lift the top knee in an arc, keeping your pelvis facing forward and steady throughout the movement. 3 Lower your leg and repeat for two sets of 16 moves. 4 Switch sides and repeat with the other leg. At the end of each set, hold the last position open for 10 seconds.

Aim for a steady rhythm. 3 Hooping correctly takes a bit of practice, so start with five minutes a day and build from there. Create a playlist of music you love to work out to and, before long, you can be hooping for 20-40 minutes at a time. If you can manage to do this three times a week, it’s likely you’ll see results really quickly.

MY FOODIE LIFE

‘I’m like a futuristic jamie oliver!’ Do you follow a strict diet? We’re very well fed on set – we have proper meals from the local pub. I’ve not actually eaten bread since last September when I came back from America and my trousers didn’t fit. I panicked – I spend a lot of money on my trousers! I’m not really that health conscious, though. I still drink beer and eat sweets and crisps. What’s your breakfast of choice? At the weekend, I have a proper breakfast – bacon medallions, baked beans, mushrooms, two poached eggs, orange juice and a cup of tea. Will you go teetotal for January? No, I never go teetotal. I always have lots of Christmas parties, then January is for meeting up with all the people I didn’t see in December. What’s your best hangover cure? A bottle of Lucozade and a walk. Do you have any new foodie finds? I recently got into edamame [soy beans], which I keep in the freezer. I thought they’d make a great cinema snack and, when I was in LA, I saw

My mum would serve Sunday roast on top of a pancake, which was weird but to me it felt normal

they had them at the movies. I’m like a futuristic Jamie Oliver! Any childhood food memories? My mum’s a lovely woman but she was, and still is, a terrible cook. She would give me beans with hotdogs and would serve a Sunday roast on

top of a pancake, which was weird but to me it felt normal. Which of your celebrity pals has cooked you the best meal? Gino D’Acampo is a great cook. To be honest, whenever I’ve been at his house, his missus Jessica has been buzzing around. She’s the secret behind his success! The last time I went to theirs, they did pigs in blankets galore and Christmas food with an Italian twang. What about your co-hosts on Celebrity Juice? I don’t know what Holly [Willoughby] is like at cooking, but Fearne [Cotton] makes cakes without sugar, which seems impossible to me – but she seems to think it tastes nice. Dream dinner party guests? Winona Ryder. I’ve been in love with her ever since I saw Beetlejuice and I’m pleased she’s back on screen in Stranger Things. I’d also invite Jim Carrey. He makes me laugh. What would be your last meal? Christmas dinner is the best. Or a baked potato with cheese and coleslaw. Those are my meals. The new series of Through the Keyhole starts on ITV in the new year
